JAPA, Rosse María Villanueva  y  ALVAREZ, Luis Alberto Santos. Quality of interhospital care: Systematic review. Vive Rev. Salud [online]. 2023, vol.6, n.18, pp.907-919.  Epub 25-Sep-2023. ISSN 2664-3243.

Currently, the quality of care during interhospital transfers of patients is a complex task, which challenges the ability of health care personnel to maintain a caring environment around these patients. Objective. To analyze the quality of interhospital care. Methodology. A systematic review was carried out and the quality of interhospital care was evaluated. DeCS terms and Boolean operators with algorithms (Care quality) AND (Interhospital); (Care quality) AND (Interhospital) were used in the information search. Considering studies from 2017-2023, in databases such as PubMed 48 articles were obtained, PLoS one 5 articles, Science Direct 11, Scielo 33 articles, Sage Journals 6, Elsevier 7, Springer Link 5 articles. Of the 131 articles in total, 70 were eliminated based on incomplete abstracts and 34 articles that did not have complete information were excluded; obtaining 17 articles to perform data extraction and analysis. Conclusion. There are strategies for adequate interhospital care, such as: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as an option to safely transport patients with Severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, it is essential to ensure hygiene measures and the provision of personal protective equipment to prevent the spread of disease; ensure adequate communication and exchange of information, through virtual means, both for family members and staff; it is essential to have a general plan to prevent any unpredictable and acute event, improve the efficiency of health care delivery, which ultimately translates into better outcomes for patients.
